Mike Tyson Gives Blessing To Jamie Foxx To Play Him In Upcoming Limited Series

Jamie Foxx will be playing Mike Tyson on the small screen in a limited series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The legendary boxer has given his blessing to the project which will be helmed by Antoine Fuqua and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.

“I have been looking to tell my story for quite some time,” Mike shared in a statement. “With the recent launch of Legends Only League and the excitement from fans following my return to the ring, now feels like the perfect moment. I look forward to collaborating with Martin, Antoine, Jamie and the entire creative team to bring audiences a series that not only captures my professional and personal journey but also inspires and entertains.”

The project has been in the works as a movie for quite a while and was first announced to fans last year.

However, the project is now set as a limited series versus a movie for the big screen.

Jamie has been sharing his workout regime with fans on social media to gear up for the project. Check out the latest here…
